Sehr geehrte Frau Gaertner,

das Kriegsministerium und die kaiserliche Familie bedauert Ihnen mitteilen zu müssen,

das Ihr Sohn

Anton Gaertner

am 19. 7. 1916 gefallen ist. Leider können wir Ihnen keine näheren Umstände zu seinem Tod mitteilen.

Hochachtungvoll

Der Kriegsminister

In short, A Gaertner died after 32 min of flight, over the designated area, as he was told to spot enemy artillery on a solo mission in his Roland cII. He was jumped by a single N11. Observer didnt hit the braodside of a barn, locked the MG, so the Brit just had plenty of time, ventilating me. Crashed in to the frontline, died, my Observer survived.
